Stag's Hollow Winery N/V Muscat Frizzante (Okanagan Valley) BC
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $22 + taxes
Date Tasted: July 27th, 2017
Tasting Notes: A blend of grapes from multiple sites and vintages; 57% Muscat Ottonel and 5% Orange Muscat from 2016 and 38% Riesling from 2015 which received extended lees contact post-fermentation. Made Frizzante by forced carbonation prior to bottling, this sparkling wine is mostly, a light and fizzy Summertime treat with soft, floral notes and tangy citrus and orchard fruit aromas and flavours. Though, with time in the glass, layers of lees and richer fruit like melons and peaches appear. A light and fruity alternative to Traditional Method sparkling wines to be enjoyed in its youth. Drink now-2019.
